  3. Nanaimo Dragonboat Festival



Although the Nanaimo Dragonboat Festival didn't first begin until 2003, dragon boat racing actually originated in China some 2400 years ago. Besides cheering on more than 70 paddleboat racers, festival-goers can enjoy plenty of live music, traditional dance, a beer garden, and plenty of food vendors. The annual three-day event at Maffeo Sutton Park sees around 2500 paddlers and 10,000 attendees, with all the proceeds given to charities that treat and care for breast cancer patients.
